Attraction details
Owner description: The London Dungeon, one of the UK’s most iconic attractions, has reinvented itself now as a bigger, bolder and better attraction in the vast underground vaults of County Hall on the South Bank, next to the EDF Energy London Eye. The all new multi-million pound attraction will bring 1000 years of authentic London history to life with a unique mix of talented live actors performing in scarily funny shows, stunning special effects, edge of your seat surprises and two exciting thrill rides. Guests will embark on a journey through a dramatic London landscape going back ten centuries. They will be guided through ghastly plague-ridden streets, witness Guy Fawkes’ dramatic plot to blow up Parliament, travel back to Jack the Ripper’s bleak Whitechapel and walk beneath London’s foreboding medieval gates. There are new shows and rides which are more dramatic and surprising than ever, new funnier scripts, more theatrical costumes and styling and more talented actors to play even more colourful villains and blaggards.

“Pre book!!!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

The queues can be ridiculous so pre book to avoid disappointment. The dungeons was fun & creepy at times and we had fun but if I'm being honest the old dungeons was better with more of an atmosphere but still Worth a visit if you haven't been before.
Pre book online for discount.

“Not as I expected”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

After reading reviews on here, I was expecting slightly better than it was. A good experience of the history of time, just a shame you still have to pay full price when two of the main rides were out of service due to technical problems. Can be very scary for the little ones, rooms a little crowded, best part of the attraction for me was the hall of mirrors!

“Just brill”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

Went with my 2 kids, the queue went really fast despite how long it looked and the photo oppurtunity along the way in the queue was great. It was nothing short of fun, every corner was shear enjoyment. We are hoping to go back this summer, yes, it's one of those places that can do with an annual visit.

What makes the London dungeons a very good experience is the people who work there. They are very good at getting into the parts that they play. We found it very entertaining. It was nothing like we expected. Every room we entered kept us on tenterhooks never knowing what to expect. All in all very good.
